    Minimum Requirments

    About 4 years ago i was arrested for evading arrest w/motor vehicle.
    State jail felony in Texas. I was No Billed 3 months later. Does this keep me from obtaining my CC in Texas? I dont even have a parking ticket otherwise.

    Thanks

    Call the Dept of Public Safety Office closest to you and inquire into it.

    No Billed means that charges are dropped by a Grand Jury and the persons record is cleared.

    Why would you think that you should have any problems?

    No billed or pleaded no contest?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    BTW Welcome to the forum from Central Texas!!!

    I would just call and ask about your your record and CHL.

    Are you able to legally purchase a firearm? if yes I would think that there shouldn't be a problem getting your CC permit.

    Thanks
    Because no indictment came out of the incident (and assuming that you were not otherwise charged and convicted), you should be okay. On this topic the statute only refers to "convicted" and not "charged."

    This incident most likely is on your criminal history file, and is something that likely will be reviewed by the Texas DPS. If the application includes other numerous problems, the DPS has some limited discretion to deny an application. Also, I would point out that a conviction for a non-felony such as a misdemeaner offense which carries a potential punishment of jail time requires 5 years before it can be disregarded in the CHL application. Although the incident is not a conviction, you are so close to that 5-year period, you might want to wait. HOWEVER, if that incident is the only blight on your record, I say go for it RIGHT NOW!
    Live every day so that you can, with a clear conscience, look all men in their eyes and tell them to go to hell.
